A technician cleans during a uranium refuel in the reactors of the Angra II nuclear plant in Angra dos Reis, 124 miles from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 2006. Angra II, which produces 1,358-megawatts an hour, is stopped for two months once a year for fuel recharge. Brazil's plans to start enriching uranium for its two nuclear power plants have been stalled by budgetary and scheduling glitches.
